As a first step of creation Cause and Effect diagram for solving a problem, you need to clearly define an effect, put it as a "head" on your diagram and draw a "fish spine" as a horizontal line. The second step is to brainstorm the possible influencing factors and causes, and represent them as "bones" on a diagram. You can construct a few levels of causes, if needed. As a brainstorming software we recommend to use the ConceptDraw MindMap application.

Entity Relationship Diagram Examples →

An abstract representation is usually the first thing you will need while developing a database. To understand the ways that databases are structured, you should look through entity-relationship diagram examples and see the notations features and attributes. With an entity-relationship model you can describe a database of any complexity. This Entity-relationship diagram is a tool for software developers. It enables every element of database to be managed, communicated and tested before release. This ERD was created using symbols advocated by Chen's notation. Because of a linguistic origin of the Chen’s notation, the boxes representing entities could be interpreted as nouns, and the relationships between them are in verb form, shown on a diagram as a diamond.Entity Relationship Diagram Examples
